Returning to the weekday routine after the holidays is like putting on an old pair of shoes. It fits like a glove. Things start falling into place and you start to get comfortable with the idea that you are back into the everyday routine of things.
For me, that includes my weekly class with William Kalwick. I have known Bill for about 15 years. I took a couple of his workshops and attended some of his demos over the years but hadn’t been able to get into his class. I’m glad I finally was able to join the group and as I approach the two-year anniversary I can enjoy what I have learned, starting with the first day of class.
What I like about working with Bill is that he is not looking to create a clone. He provides technical guidance and allows one to flourish in independent style. He is a confident artist that finds great things in everyone’s work while understanding where everyone needs to stretch. He helps to take you there.
I have a sample of my current class work in progress. We painted this model about a year ago. I focused on the face and worked on getting the form and preliminary color down.
